This game represented the LEGO Designer Sets (Make & Create) from 2003–2005, and so the majority of models are based on them (WB1 models are from the first and second waves, and WB2 the third wave). As someone who grew up with the game and the Designer Sets as a tween, and still has many of them built to this day, I believe I can answer this question ...
Most of the models are from various Creator sets from the era (some have step-by-step instructions, some just images in the manuals), although I think some of the ones I cannot identify are probably custom builds.
Here's the ones identified for WordBuilder, using the list from Brickipedia plus some better images and info on some unused models:
It's "abandon ware", however the game is still under copyright, so you cannot legally obtain a copy of it. However if the owner of the IP (LEGO) doesn't care enough to enforce the copyright, the chance you will be sued or fined is close to zero.
Something else you need to consider: There is no guarantee that the game you download from an abandon ware ...
As the sequel to LEGO Island, many (but not all) of LI2's models are based on sets from 1998 to 2000.
Castle Island is based on LEGO Knights' Kingdom I. The castle itself, therefore, is loosely based on 6098 King Leo's Castle (my 3rd most wanted set of all time).
The battering ram shown in the screenshot is from 6096 Bull's Attack (my 4th most wanted set of ...
I think you are looking in perspective at a digital render of a tower base that has 1x2 blue bricks on each side (1 wide) with a 2x2 lime brick in the center. It only appears to be 1/3-1/3-1/3, but is in fact 1/4-1/2-1/4. You can see this best if you zoom in on the base plate and look at how the studs line up with the lowest tier of the base.
You're right. They cheated.
This youtube video shows the Robot Lab from a different camera angle.
Here you can clearly see what looks like three 1x2 bricks on a 2x4 brick of the same width. Cheaters! Boo!
Alright. Let's cheat, too.
I also think there's some funny business going on there in that model, and in a few other models.
For fun, I built it in BrickLink Studio (or at-least, how I think it would be built, my answer here has the instructions) and rendered it from a couple of angles. While it didn't give me enough control over the camera to reproduce the perspective exactly, I ...
Here is the Race Track: Set 6337
The Buggy: Set 6518
The shuttle from Set 6339 is seen ingame (Race, Outro).
Also, the fire engine from Set 6340 is in the game, possible that it looks a bit different.
On this site, people show their own LEGO Island Buildings, many of them are pretty good, like the Information Center: http://www.mocpages.com/group_mocs....
While it varies by country and jurisdiction, copyright of software tends to follow that of other literary works (i.e. within the E.U. this is "the life of the author plus seventy years").
The LEGO Group have historically been fairly active in enforcing their ownership of a number of "core" IP rights they have (elements, logos, sets, etc.), but they do not ...
You mean one of these?
Basically, you'll need two circle of these 4 x 4 corner bricks:
Separated by some of these Plate 1 x 2 with Handle:
I don't think the centre red tile with an "R" on it exists, so I think you'll have to make one out of card or something.
